Despite only being a band for four years, Dawes have found themselves one of the Current audience's most celebrated bands. We've welcomed them to the studio, to our State Fair stage, and to the UBS Forum for a special performance, and last week we welcomed them back to the UBS Forum for another special intimate performance.
Warmly received by the crowd, the quartet broke to talk to Mark Wheat a couple times during their five-song set, which drew heavily from their new record, Stories Don't End. Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith's chat with Mark covered topics ranging Goldsmith's hesitance to try the Minnesota State Fair's trademark junk food and the mystery of how Dawes were chosen to open for Bob Dylan this summer to the common misapprehension that the band hails from the South and their work for the charity Nothing but Nets.
Enjoy audio, photos and video from this very special performance, and tune in at 7 p.m. tonight to hear it on the air.
Songs played: "From a Window Seat," "Just My Luck," "Someone Will," "Something in Common," and "Most People."
